    i did the htcdev.com unlock and the one click root...now when i try and boot into recovery i get a picture of a phone with 2 arrows around it and one pointing down, and then a few seconds later i get a picture of a phone with a red triangle and explication mark.

    every thing went fine, and every thing seems to be working fine...

    That's normal for the stock recovery.

    You need to install a custom recovery.

    I've seen somewhere that Amon Ra works best on the rezound.

    Ok so I'm trying to flash Amon_ra and for some reason it's kicking my backside. First I tried flashing in hboot and I get:

    SD Checking......................
    Loading..........[PH98IMG.zip]
    No Image!

    Realized it was in the internal memory I moved it to ext_sd and then I get this:

    Parsing...........[PH98IMG.zip]

    it then returns to the hboot screen. Selected recovery and get the triangle with the !.

    I've not had this problem with my other devices so..............:thinking:

    One of the easiest ways to get back to recovery(If you're already rooted/unlocked and need to install a recovery. Plug into your PC, find your android SDK that you just used to unlock your PC. type adb reboot bootloader. And you're ready to fastboot flash recovery <recoveryfile> .

    Bobcat ...i know this is a stupid question but is your SD card formatted properly? Wasn't it on the Dinc that if it wasnt' properly formatted it wouldn't read certain Pxxxxxx.zip files? I mean you would think that it should be formatted to the right setting already.


    ehhh anyways glad you got it going.

    BC it was kickin my ass too... i finally figured it out and got it to work :D you just need to make sure the android info text file is the same version than the current mainversion of your firmware. technically it could be higher, but you dont want to do that,as it will change it on your phone to that higher number,hindering the process for future flashes :eek:

    for example,if youre on 2.01.605.11,your android info cant be 1.02.605.6. ive found the hard way that the wrong android info does not return an error,just disregaurds the update :mad:

    i finally got recovery,system and boot images to flash in hboot. yay! :p

    it is possible to edit the mainversion number,so you can flash older recovery,boot and system images. doing so,however,will not let you downgrade whole ruus to get an older hboot and radio. youre still stuck with those ;)

    should be able to "fastboot flash zip" PH98IMG files too,but i havent gotten to play with that after getting a handle on the main version thing.

    It's normal in the stock recovery to get the green circle symbol followed by the red triangle/exclamation point symbol and get stuck requiring a battery pull?

    Battery pull is not required. When you get the red triangle you can press VOL up + power to get to recovery.

    No, I use, from the Market, Quick Boot. Also, I think if you power down, then you can press volume down + power. Just remember that when you get the red triangle, press volume up + power to get into recovery.
